I'm not in the mood for films, so I decided to do something else. I don't expect that everyone will enjoy this, posting this mainly as curiosity. Bit of warning: I'll have problems describing what demoscene is. I don't like how CGI is used in mainstream cinema. One of the reasons is that I was spoiled by demoscene, where computer graphics are their own independent thing.
In short demos are executable programs, just like games, but non-interactive. They can be easily confused with animation, but are very different beast. Demo art is real time, meaning that every frame is happening right there on your computer. Bellow I'm posting some videos, as examples can speak for themselves. Those are recordings, yet keep in mind that every single demo is a program, that you can launch on your system (I'm posting videos, as not everyone would like to launch unknown executable). Two demos bellow are fairly accessible - there are better examples, but I fear they could be misunderstood by untrained eye. 720p or higher resolution is recommended for watching:
Demo making is competitive and non-commercial. Rapid increase of processing power in computers became problematic - judging demos by technical merits became obsolete and utilizing whole hardware by small teams (working in spare time) is very time consuming. This are some of the reasons why artificial limits has been established for demo making. Main limitation is the size of the executable and by many this category of tiny programs is considered a pinnacle of demoscene. This demo is under 4KB (four kilobytes), which is probably smaller than your avatar:
If someone is interested in demoscene, more can be found on Pouet
- website which is pretty much a central place for demoscene activities. You can also watch descent documentary about demoscene - it is focused on demo groups in Hungary, still it is very relevant:
